Kaknästornet review Rate it

For an utterly spectacular aerial view of Stockholm and its surroundings, visit this 155m-tall (510ft) tower - one of Scandinavia's tallest buildings. On a clear day you can see up to 60km (37 miles) from its observation points up on the 30th and 31st floors. Nearer to hand are the island of Djurgården to the south, Gamla Stan and downtown to the west and the beginning of the archipelago out to the east. Designed by Bengt Lindroos and Hans Borgström, the rather ugly concrete structure (itself visible from all over the city) was completed in 1967 and still transmits radio and TV broadcasts. On the ground floor, the Stockholm Information Service operates a busy visitor centre and gift shop. Lunch and dinner are served in the restaurant and café on the 28th floor.
